    Default Stay safe: stay home.

    Just got back from a quick last minute grocery run to San Cristobal.

    Maybe I'm suffering from selective memory, but I don't remember it being quite so crazy before. Saw three motorcycle-on-motorcycle wrecks (no injuries, lots of yelling and hand waving), saw at least two drivers who were either drunk or seriously distracted by a swarm of bees in the car, and many pedestrians stepping out in the middle of traffic as if cars had not been invented. Not to mention the big trucks speeding down the road to get home before the night is over.

    I'm afraid it is going to be a banner year for traffic incidents. Certainly hope I'm wrong on that one.

    At any rate, to have a safe and happy ________ (insert one, more, or none of the following: Christmas, Hannukah, Winter Solstice, Festival of Lights, Kwanzi, weekend), I recommend staying home and off the roads as much as possible.

    Peace to all.

    For the last week or two the traffic in Santiago has really been heavy.

    Happy Holidays to ALL!

    Traffic is heavy here in Florida, but so freakin' organized it is giving me culture shock in reverse...Nobody is diving out in front, squeezing into the two-car space I left between me and the car in front. Driving a 2012 Nissan Rogue...nice wheels...

    But stores are not all that overflowing with people, and there is parking...ah, the wonders of Never Never Land...

    If you were at La Sirena in San Cristobal, I find it's always a bit nuts there, I can only imagine the craziness with La Noche Buena preparations. Something should be done about the two skinny lane road in and out of there.

    Today I stopped at a shoe store, then spent the afternoon at the gym - which was empty. When I got back on the road, it was like a free-for-all, I actually felt like I was in DR a few times!
